Move Over Monsanto!

You probably know that I do not like pesticides, herbicides or GMO’s in my food.   If you have taken advantage of watching the video series “GMO’s Revealed,” I’m sure you are learning information that will serve your better health.

Mike Adams, known as The Health Ranger, was interviewed in the “GMO Revealed” series.  He informed that a device is being created that you can tale to the grocery store with you.  It will be small. similar to a cell phone.   You point the device toward a food and it will display how much glyphosate (round-up) is in the food.  Only then will you be able to truly decide what you put in your mouth.

He thinks that Monsanto will end up like the tobacco industry.  Tobacco companies, for years, said smoking did not cause a negative effect on your health, just as Monsanto is saying today.  However, through court cases and discovery, their own research is revealing that they have known how bad Round Up is for our health.

40 other countries have outlawed GMO’s.  In the US, we outlawed labeling  GMO’s.  How crazy is that?  If vaccines and GMO’s are good for you and support our health, the US would be far above all other countries in the health department.  But it just isn’t so.  The World Health Organization rates the health of the citizens of each country every year.   We spend far more than any other country for our health, but we are way down the list in terms of health of our citizens.  When will we wake up?  It is always a grass roots effort that wakes people up.  For the sake of the children we love, let’s be part of the grass roots effort to stop the madness before it is too late to recuperate our health!

GMO Education

Everyone talks about GMO’s.  Recently my friend asked, “well, exactly what is a GMO?”

It is understandable.  We throw words around as if everyone knows what we are talking about when, in fact, they do not.

Today begins a free video series about GMO’s.

Maybe you need more information to really decide if you want to eat GMO’s or not.  Will they hurt your children?  And how will they hurt you if you eat them?  And, how exactly do they hurt you?

If you are going to talk intelligently about GMO’s, you need information.  I have not seen this series so I do not know what they have to say about GMO’s.  As far as I know, this is the first time it has been shown.  What a service as they compile all the information together for you to see.  That means you can get the information without having to go to the library or comb through pub med.

I like being fed information as long as it is honest information.

When you have the information, it is clearly up to you to decide to include or exclude GMO’s from our diet.

And whether you include them or exclude them in your diet, at least you will be more knowledgeable.  It is always more interesting to have a conversation when we know what we are talking about!

If you are a “movie night” family, please select this one.  I know there are several days of information.  Please don’t think if you miss one day, there is no reason to continue watching.  That isn’t true.  Each video stands on its own.  Schools are starting back.  It is time for those of us who don’t go to school to get some free education!  Listen up!

Chronically Sick People

Why are so many people chronically sick and don’t seem to get help from medicine.  They are given one medication after another to try.  When it doesn’t work, on to the next one.  And, I’ve seen my share of people who never found the “right” medication.  Perhaps it is because the patient was not deficient in the medication.  Medications cannot be patented if they are naturally found in the body, so, it is safe to say, medications are foreign to the body.  So why should we be surprised with negative side effects?  They are built into the system.

Would you agree that many people are chronically sick because of adverse childhood events?

Have your doctors ask you if you experienced adverse childhood events like abuse or alcoholism in your home when you were a child?

The most common behaviors that are considered risky for your health are sexual behaviors, smoking, alcohol and drug use.  A large study found that people use these behaviors as strategies to cope with the long-term stress of adverse childhood events.  Maybe when people are sick, they should be asked about their childhood.  If a doctor sees you as an integrated whole, all of you is important in determining what is wrong with you.  This study is important.  If you had adverse childhood events, please read this study and discover the statistics.  And don’t be a statistic!  Get help!

If you had adverse childhood events, please come see me.  I can help you.  When you are having problems with your body and you realize your emotions are stored in your body, you will understand that perhaps your physical problems might be related to the emotions stored in your body from childhood.

Self-Care

There are so many things you can do for yourself at home.  Today I am going to remind you of a few.

Doing these will take only a few minutes and will reap benefits.

  • As you are standing, squeeze your butt cheeks together ten times. If you have a chronic low back, do it about every hour.  Great opportunities are while standing in line to pay for groceries, filling the car with gas and washing dishes.  But don’t forget, you can do it while sitting too.
  • Find your rolling pin in the kitchen. Use it on your body, rolling the muscles.  Generally, you massage toward the heart, no matter where you are on the body.  I find so many people have tight legs.  Start at your Achilles and go up toward your hip.  If your hips are tight, you can roll them too.
  • I read a study once that said the number one habit over years and years that led to good health was deep breathing. Let the breathing begin.  When you breathe in, your stomach should go out.  When you breathe out, your stomach should go in.  Your shoulders stay still.  All the action is in the abdomen.  Stop once a day and just practice breathing!
  • Be Happy! There is nothing more healing than happiness.  You may think you can’t create it, but you can.  For proof, just be around a small child, a sweet animal or put on some music that makes you want to dance!  Practice smiling!

Often, we forget to do small things to help us feel better because our focus is out there in the world instead of inside our body.  Be serious about doing these.   Print this page off or write these down on a notecard and put them on your bathroom mirror or your refrigerator as a reminder.  Don’t wait for pain to be your reminder!

And, if you wish you had seen the Vaccines Revealed, and didn’t get a chance, there is another free showing for a limited time.  Go here.

Is Your Posture Affecting Your Health?

People watching is an interesting business, especially in the summer.  The beach is the best, but anywhere will do.  Watch people as they walk, and their posture will talk to you.  You can tell if they are in pain while walking.  You can tell if their head juts forward or if one shoulder is higher than the other.  It is one thing to see it in others.  But look in the mirror.  Do you have postural distortions?

As I tell my patients, let’s look at the long-term picture.  It isn’t just about what is happening today, but we want to have good posture in 20 years from now.

Like Roger Dangerfield (for those who might remember him), posture gets no respect.  There are many studies that correlate posture with health.  Your posture speaks volumes.  And to change it takes work.  As long as you are healthy, doing a little work on your posture each day will pay off dividends.

So today, look in the mirror and notice your posture.  You might even take a photo of yourself.  Over time, continue to notice and see if you can make corrections.  You change posture through strengthening the stretched muscles and stretching the tight muscles.  If you need help to determine what those are, come in and see me!
